    The entire parish of Aldingham, Westmoreland, is included in the manor of Muchland, originally called Michael-land, from Sir Michael le Fleming, who received a grant of the demesne of this manor from the Conqueror. In process of time the name Michael was changed into the Scotch epithet Mickle, which signifies much, and the lands were finally corrupted into the appellation of Much-land. This also includes part of the parish of Urswick, called Much-Urswick. A court leet and baron, which were granted in 1199, by King John to William le Fleming and his heirs, are still held in this manor twice a year.
    In 1269 the manor passed in marriage to Richard de Caunesfield.
